Fancy Day

Ooh la la! Fancy Friday was one exquisite (that's a fancy word for great) day! Our anticipation has been building for this stupendous day and let me just say it was well worth the wait to see all the 1st graders dressed in their imaginative posh outfits. Of course, I couldn't resist dressing in my most elegant clothes too. Students were thrilled (that's even more excited than excited) to complete fancy activities throughout our shortened day.

1st graders read Fancy Nancy books, went on a fancy word hunt, and used elegant vocabulary; looking exquisite while doing it all.  A large part of 1st graders Writer's Workshop is focusing on using word choice in our writing pieces. Our Fancy Word Wall will help 1st grade writers' pieces sparkle and dazzle.
Fancy day brought one extra magnificent visitor to first grade.  Madame (that's a fancy way of saying Mrs.) Klipfel had a snow day, so she was put to work in first grade.  She videotaped our green screen project and brought in fancy movie star sunglasses for the whole class (looking exquisite the whole time).
To end our fabulous Fancy Day, we had a little soiree with the rest of the first grade. Students paired up to finish the day with some phenomenal reading.
1st graders (and their teacher) had a splendiferous Fancy Day learning and working, with our pinkies up!

  1. Dear Mademoiselle Klipfel and Class,
    I was so pleased to spend Fancy Day with you this year. Your posh outfits made my eyes sparkle when I entered your elaborate classroom. I am excited to view your Valentine's Day production with the green screen.
